Lao

How arrogant
To assume that you know the reason
For which you were built

Start your projects
Pursue your whims
And when you first feel
The irony, the feeling
That what you are pursuing is
All for naught..
THAT is what will truly be ironic

Have you ever seen The Game?
If you have you
Will get what I mean when I tell you
The true twist in life is the twist
After the twist. The truth behind
The breakthrough.

I hope you can skip the first part,
The worrying and hurrying
Searching for affirmation through
All the wrong channels, and not
Even bothering to change
If you can’t find the remote

If you do step into that trap
I hope you finally
Unhinge your leg to see,
To feel what it is like to walk
Freely, no longer impinged by shallow desire
The root of all your ire

I hope you look in the mirror
Or at a faded photograph
Or into the eyes of another
And see all you’ll ever need

We were all built for love
To participate in everything that
Little word contains
I hope you realize that

And then I hope you throw it all away

How arrogant
To assume that you know the reason
For which you were built
